Sheriff John Ingram knows the use of drones, if regulated properly, could be an effective tool for local law enforcement.
But he also sees the drawbacks, and recognizes it will be a long time before drone use is a reality.
“There are a number of legitimate uses for a drone,” Ingram said. “But there are also several concerns.”
Ingram was asked by the North Carolina Sheriff’s Association to write a letter to the state’s legislative research committee outlining the pros and cons of drone use.
